Zion-Friedheim Evangelical Lutheran Church

We are glad you have chosen to worship with us this morning on this beautiful summer morning.  If you are a guest, we ask that you sign one of our guest registries.  There is a registry in either entranceway of the church.  If you are communing, take a moment to complete a communion registration card (found in either entranceway of the church).  Place the card in the offering plate or give it to one of the Deacons.  Please come back and worship with us again soon.

Statement of Communion Practice

We believe that in the Lord’s Supper we receive the true Body and Blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in, with, and under the bread and wine.  We welcome to our Altar all who share this belief and are fellow members of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.  If you are communing with us for the first time, please speak to one of the Deacons or Pastor Dahling.

We remember our members who are celebrating birthdays this week—Aaron Bergman, David Brandt, Dan Linnemeier, Mike Selking, Sam Baumann, Denise Conrad, Chase McAllister, Devin Sielschott, Joe Gorman, Kacey Liechty, Jessica Linnemeier (Mrs. Ryan), Kevin Schultz, and Kim Fuhrmann.  As the school year comes to a close, we remember all those who teach and work in either the parochial or public schools.  May our loving Savior direct, bless, and guide their lives.

May the Great Physician grant health and strength to all who are in need of His healing hand.  We especially remember in our prayers Helen Erxleben, Bill Baumann, a patient at Lutheran following knee surgery, Sandy Blomenberg who is scheduled for knee surgery tomorrow, Eugene Meyer (Tammy Dahling’s uncle, who is a patient at St. Joe), Troy Sinar (Dick & Donna Hileman’s nephew), Shirley Fuhrmann (sister-in-law of Ken and Stan Fuhrmann), Rae Fuhrmann (our Wyneken kindergarten teacher), who underwent knee surgery, and Derek Shoaf (Evelyn Keuneke’s great nephew).

We remember in our prayers Andrea Jackson and Michael Driscoll who were married yesterday afternoon at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Ft. Wayne.  May the Lord bless this young couple as they begin their lives together.

We remember our high school graduates today—Brandon Buuck, Nathan Buuck, Perry Caston, Brett Conrad, Lydia Dahling, Alicia Drier, Karly Everett, Joey Gorman, Laura Knipstein, Cam Thieme, and Sara Werling.  We pray that the Lord will continue to guide and direct them as they begin a new phase in their lives, whether it is the world of work or pursing further education.  May the Lord’s blessings be upon each of these special young people.

We rejoice with Delmar & Joyce Heckman who will celebrate their 58th wedding anniversary on Tuesday, June 5.  May our Father in heaven, continue to be at the heart of their home and bless and guide them.

We remember those who are serving our country—Brian Moeller who is in Iraq, Jason Putteet, Cam Koldyke (Audra’s husband), Josh Colwell (Tiffany’s husband), our reservists, Josh, Zach, and Jacob Stoppenhagen, Mike Brandt, and Brian Journay (grandson of Dick & Alma Miller), Justin Grant (Shirley Buuck’s nephew) who is in Afghanistan, Cody Kiess, grandson of Gene and Irene Kiess, and Aaron Allen and Toney Hempel, Lucile Stoppenhagen’s grandsons, who are both deployed in Iraq.  May the Lord protect and guide them in their missions.

Included in this morning’s bulletin is our weekly study guide, “Time in the Word.”  This week’s theme is “God Has No Boundaries.”

Board of Stewardship’s Food for Thought – Our society has become more and more affluent.  Most households have two or more cars, two or more television sets, cell phones, retirement accounts, etc.  Materially we are growing richer.  However, in many ways, we are becoming poorer.  It is not because we lack money, but rather it’s because we are dissatisfied with what we have.  We don’t enjoy what we have because we have lost appreciation for all of our blessings.  No amount of money is able to make us content.  Paul wrote, “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil” (1 Timothy 6:10).  In Christ, we can stop loving money and the things that it can buy and learn to be content.

The Morning Glories are having a work day on Tuesday, June 12.  They will be putting “loopers” together to make rag rugs.  If there is time, blue jean strips will be made and sewn for rugs.  Bring your lunch.  Start time is 9 a.m., finishing up around 3 p.m.  If you can’t come for the whole day, come for just a portion of it.  Hope to see you on the 12th!!

“Lutheran Night” at the Wizards has been scheduled for Friday, June 15.  It’s now a doubleheader with a start time of 5:30 p.m.  The Wizards will be playing the Lugnuts (a minor league team of the Toronto Blue Jays).  You will receive a voucher for a Lutheran Night hat from Thrivent and have an opportunity to win a $50 gift certificate from the Wizards Souvenir Store, an autographed team bat, and a chance to throw out a ceremonial first pitch and more!  There will be a “Faster Pastor” trophy given to the Lutheran Pastor who has the best fastball in town.  Kids, if you have an “A” on your report card and bring your card to the Thrivent kiosk you will receive a free speed pitch voucher and free popcorn.  Two students will be selected to come back to the Wizards Christian concert on July 19 as a VIP guest, throwing out a ceremonial first pitch and meeting their favorite Wizards players.    “Quick Change” who were recent contestants on “America’s Got Talent” will also be at the game.  See Leesa Heckman today for your $3 tickets ($1 of each ticket goes to Lutheran Social Services). 

For a $10 donation, you can purchase a luminary in honor of a cancer survivor or in memory of someone who has lost that battle.  You can check with Gene or Irene Kiess this morning to sign up.  Luminaries need to be purchased by June 10.  You might also wish to help sponsor one of our Relay for Life walkers—Marlene Conrad, Sharon, Brittany, & Anna Franke, Ashtyn Freimuth, Joyce & Leesa Heckman, Al, Shirley, &r Allison Hormann, Gene & Irene Kiess, Derek Schultz, Betty Sielschott, Cecelia Smith, Tracy & Deb Stevens, and Alex Weiland.  See them to give them your pledge!

Friedheim is asked to bring some food for the Relay supper on Friday, June 22. Two roasters of German potato salad have already been donated, but we still need 150 hot dogs and 100 servings of desserts (9’ x 13” disposable pans preferred).  Workers are also needed.  If you can work any of these shifts, 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. (one worker), 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. (two workers), and from  7 p.m. to 9 p.m. (two workers), it would be appreciated.  Please call Leesa Heckman (724-4340) if you are willing to work or make a food donation.

The LWML Quarterlies have arrived.  Pick up a copy.  There is so much information in there—stories, updates on mission grants, Bible studies, and news from both the national organization and what’s going on in the Indiana District.  You can also visit the LWML website, www.lwml.org, for more information.  Check out both the Quarterly and the website!

Council Members:  Don’t forget to pick up your minutes from last month’s Council Meeting.  The next Council Meeting will take place on Tuesday, June 5, at 8 p.m. in the church basement.  You may pick up your minutes after the worship service today.

The Thursday morning LWML Bible class is now on their summer schedule.  During June, July, and August, they meet once a month, on the second Thursday of the month.  Marlene Conrad will be hosting the June class at her home on Thursday, June 14, at 9 a.m.

Please note that the Wyneken Board of Education meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 12, at 7 p.m. rather than on its normal Thursday.  Thanks!
